Subject:        Italics in Email

The convention for writing italics in plain-text e-mail is "/" before,
and "/" after.  Thus:

/italics/ in e-mail *or* (that's *bold*) /italics in e-mail/ (although
line breaks and punctuation characters can interrupt interpretation)

Now all you need is a mail reader that displays italics!  If you are
using Outlook Express, then OE-Quotefix ( http://flash.to/oe-quotefix/ )
is for you!
